When you're a teenager and you just think you have life figured out and then an adult comes and tells you otherwise you feel quite bitter about the situation.

Then you start out your 20's and you think oh... hmm.... looks like I really didn't have it all figured out... but I sure do now!  I look back at myself in the beginning of my 20's and laugh at what I thought life was all about! 

I know that I have so much more personal growth to experience and that is something to me that I look forward to.  But I don't think I knew who AMANDA was until probably the age of 27.  26 I was starting to get a clue, but now I know who I am.  I know what I want.  I know what I represent and stand for.  I know what I want out of this life, and am figuring out what it is that I have to do to get what I want out of life.

The most important thing I've realized is PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT.... the most important thing for us as human beings.  Constantly exercising our inner selves... doing everything that we can to grow inside every day.

I recently had this relationship with this girl (we won't use names but she's serves as the PERFECT example) who honestly was the most lost soul I had ever seen in my life.  While hanging out with her I noticed so many times where she would try to be whoever it was that she was hanging out with most at the time.  I think we all test the waters of the people that we have in our lives, but dang it... this screamed LOST SOUL IN NEED OF MAJOR PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT.

I tried to help this girl, because I believe we should ALWAYS be developing our inner persons into more, but she like so many people that I see in my world are stuck in this constant place in their life.  They do nothing for their personal development.  Then they complain of their current situations.  Well, if you are doing what you've always done, you'll get what you've always had.  My most favorite quote in the world!  In fact, I do not believe this is not my first blog post about it either!

These people in our lives that are stuck in these "ruts" and continue to make excuses for why they are never working on personal development are probably not the best people to keep around you all of the time.  You MUST surround yourself by people who are striving to grow like you are striving to grow.

Ways to work on personal development:

READ!!!!  Always be indulged in a book that is written by a successful person or a book that is based around growing and becoming successful.  I wish I would have done this 10 years ago, then I'd be not even 30 and probably in the top 5% of successful people.  

Write out your goals... don't just think of them.  GET THEM ON PAPER... HAVE THEM IN FRONT OF YOU ALWAYS!  This way you are constantly seeing what you are striving for, and you will just work on becoming who are supposed to be in order for these things to attract to you.

Every day... reflect on the events that took place.  Take 20 minutes to sit back and think about everything that happened.  Then the events you weren't please with replay them in your mind how you would have liked them to go.  Then you no longer have these bad feelings inside and instead feel that you have learned from your day's events.

We should ALWAYS be reading books on how to be a better person, how to know how to get what it is that we want out of this life.  Instead of music in the background... why not put on some inspirational audio CD from a successful person.  Always be striving to grow... and you will.  

And always be YOU.  Don't try to be somebody else, because the point of this life is for us to find out who we are and embrace it and grow with it.  The key word here is GROW.  Never stop growing on the inside.
